One of the best castles we visited. Interesting tour also in English for kids and adults, in a good price. You really get a feel of the time. Make sure to take the folders of guides at the start.

Not a chateau full of grand furniture and tapestries but showing how it was lived in at the time. The English booklet we were given goes in to great detail about daily life and was fascinating. Definitely worth visiting, don't miss the dungeons!

I loved this chateau. There is no royal glory here. Instead an imaginative presentation of a building giving insight into social history is offered in a folder. In many rooms there is a glass case displaying unusual objects and one is asked to guess their...More
